How often do you visit Starbucks?! Drop a comment below and let me know your go-to order. Mine is….
With a Starbucks on every corner, it’s likely Starbucks is a part of your regular routine. Perhaps it’s your Monday reward to start the work week or the start to your weekend as you pop in the drive-thru on the way home on Friday. Humans like routine and we like to know what to expect, so when given the opportunity to stop at an unknown coffee shop or a Starbucks on our road trip, we’ll likely choose what we know.
If you don’t watch what you order, though, you may be gulping down more sugar than you’ve bargained for. Next time you stop into a Starbucks, here are the healthiest things you’ll find that you should order instead of those sugary frappuccinos.
– Brewed Coffee
Simple and classically delicious. A cuppa joe is the healthiest way to get your Starbucks fix without ruining your healthy lifestyle efforts. Drink it black for the healthiest option, but if you can’t stand it that way, just add a dab of stevia or raw honey. Because their fresh-brewed coffees are only a few calories, if you do add a dab of sweetener, you won’t be adding so much that you’re turning your simple coffee into the caloric content of a meal. Slowly decrease any sweetener you are adding over time, and before you know it, you’ll be loving your black coffee.
– Brewed Teas
Freshly brewed teas at Starbucks are the perfect flavor sensation with added antioxidants. Get them hot or iced for a refreshing way to power through your day.
– Nitro Cold Brew
It’s smooth and frothy, and it tastes fantastic! Change up your order from a hot coffee to a cold brew on those days you’re in the mood for a cold drink.
– Caffè Latte and Almond Milk
If you want something that tastes more indulgent, get this iconic Starbucks drink but have them make it with almond milk. It’s creamy and sweet, and it’s a nice indulgence every so often.
– Spinach, Feta, and Egg White Breakfast Wrap
Made with cage-free egg whites and tucked into a whole wheat wrap, it’s a hearty breakfast that will fill you up without guilt. Much better than eating one of those paltry pastries that will leave you hungry for more, or zipping through a fast food drive-thru.
– Protein Boxes
For a great to-go lunch, this box has a fantastic mix of carrots and apples along with a protein of choice large enough to satisfy but portioned properly so you’re not left stuffed.
– Latte Macchiato
Macchiato lovers, I’ve got you covered. Try this offering which takes
espresso shots over aerated almond milk to get a frothy caffeinated treat.
– Evolution Fresh Sweet Greens and Lemon
If you’re more in the mood for juice, try one of the Evolution drinks
Starbucks carries. They’re made with all kinds of fruits and vegetables that will give you a power boost for your day.
So go in and grab a table or roll through the drive-thru. You can even set up your favorite orders in the Starbucks app, so they’re ready when you get there. Now that you know your healthiest Starbucks items, you don’t have to feel guilty!
